Smile Ubuntu Server Installation on IBM Power (P520 Power 6)


Hello,

I want to install "Ubuntu Server level OS" on IBM Power 6 Server. The make/model is "8203-E4A".

So, Kindly suggest the Ubuntu OS compatibility for IBM Power Server. Which Ubuntu edition I need to download for installation?

I have already tested "Fedora20 and RHEL6" for IBM Power Server, found working properly.

Now, want to try Ubuntu. What is this little and big endian OS?


Advanced Thanks,
Nishith N.Vyas

Little or big endian in a nutshell is the order of how data is stored in computer memory. Little endian stores the least significant bit in the smallest address and the opposite for big endian. The type of endian is hardware dependent.

linux must be ported for the desired architecture. I believe the following is compatible.
